Policy and goals
All VELUX manufacturing sites are certified according to OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Management). The long-term vision is to reach zero accidents and incidents.
In 2016, we implemented new safety standards in production and warehousing supporting the ongoing effort to build a strong safety culture and improve our safety risk management. The new standards comprise:
- Employee Safety Engagement Standard strengthening employee commitment to safety.
- Roles, Responsibilities and Safety Performance Management Standard defining key personal safety activities, authorisation and performance indicators for all employee categories.
- Workplace Risk Assessment Standard intensifying focus on preventive actions that can mitigate risks in the daily work and in non-routine work.
To monitor all critical safety standards, we introduced an extended internal auditing system.
We also implemented the ‘Take Care’ safety programme at all VELUX production and warehouse sites. ‘Take Care’ encourages personal commitment and team effort in safety work and is supported by a company-wide ‘Safety Hero’ campaign.
